Arriving with a cargo of steelwork loaded in Holland and destined for the Type 45 build programme at Govan, the Belize-registered coaster RMS RIGA was seen heading for the Bravo anchorage on Sunday morning, to await her passage upriver. RMS RIGA, which was seen on a similar duty nine months ago, is owned by Riga Shipping and managed by Clermont Services, both of Latvia. The 1,380 tonne deadweight coaster was built in Germany in 1984, and has an overall length of 79.5 metres.
